Christmas “Light” Tutorial

This cute idea is from Creations by AR

Here’s a fun project to make for the holidays (or any occasion) using acetate sheets.  For this particular one, I used the Frosted Sheet rather than the clear one because it’s sturdier and the effect is more dramatic. I wanted a metal base, so I used a 2″ diam tin canister with a 1/2″ tall bottom base. Of course it’s safest to use a battery-operated tea light rather than the real one, but since I couldn’t find mine, I used a real one for the pictures.  I had the light going for several minutes and it was fine — not too hot.

When stamping on acetate, you’ll want to use a specialty ink, like StazOn.  This won’t smear like regular ink will.

Small Canister with Removable Clear Top
Frosted Sheets
StazOn Ink
Sticky Tape
Tea Light (Battery-Operated preferred)

Cut Acetate Sheet the width around the inside of the canister plus 1/4″ by 3-1/2″ high

Stamp image(s) onto the Frosted Sheet using StazOn

Apply Sticky Tape along one of the side edges and adhere together with the other side, forming a tube

Pop out the clear plastic top from the cover (you will need to have this off if using real tea lights)

Place the “tube” inside the canister and have fun decorating!
